    Anyway, I did put The Weeknd somewhere in my top 10. "Call Out My Name" is undoubtedly his best song ever for me. The album would've been higher in mine if it's longer and if it's more consistent.

    Didn't vote for Chloe x Halle even though I do really like "Happy Without Me". Now I'm listening to the album and it actually sounds really good, much better than my first listen a couple months ago.

    Chloe x Halle was my No.3 It really grew on me after a few listens and became one of my favourite records released last year. I knew they wouldn't be high but they deserve better than #26 for Happy Without Me alone already.
    The Weekend EP was nice and Call Out My Name is a good R&B tune but that's it, I'll wait for the album

    Voted for Chloe x Halle. It was a really strong debut, although it took a couple of listens for it to grown on me. It would have been even stronger if it had less tracks to be honest.

    The Weeknd's EP was rubbish. Stopped using it within 3 days and haven't looked back since.
    Rest In Peace Lilly!

    C x H deserved a few points for their vision and some incredible songs. But I see a lot of room for improvement still

    Suncity was a pleasant surprise, most songs are great and not coma inducing like his debut album was.

    Passion Like Fire is not my favorite Tamia album but it was a decent add to her discography.

    I love Khalid's voice and the EP was really good. The only EP I voted for. Have checked out the Hive Mind but didn't fully get into it by the time I created the list but it's a good effort

    Zayn was my #3. If he had cut short the album into a solid 12-track record, it would've been easily my #1. "There You Are" might be one of the Poppiest song of the album, but it is really THAT song. I'm legit surprised they haven't pushed it further. I heard it on the radio a couple times but it seems like it's struggling to take off here. "If I Got You" as well - it's one those songs that might succeed with some help from Spotify playlists. The R&B songs on the album are really good also but it's very obvious that they're bound to be flopping (just like y'all who didn't vote for the album). Pop radios wouldn't play his R&B stuff, Urban radios ain't touching them either - unless he has Chris Brown on the remix or something.

    I put Man of the Woods somewhere in my top 10. I know 2018 wasn't really a good for year for him but honestly, the album was actually not bad. It has some solid songs. Please everybody check out that song I embedded, "Higher Higher" - it's not a single but for me, it's one of the best things he's ever recorded. I don't even know what genre that song is, it's not R&B, it's not Country either - it's just a really great song! Deserved a Grammy tbh (the song, not the album).
